JERUSALEM (JTA) — The hacker war between Israel and Saudi Arabia is continuing, with the release of the credit card details of more Israelis.
A Saudi hacker, who has already released thousands of Israeli credit card numbers, along with the personal details of the cardholders, on Wednesday released the details of 200 more Israeli credit cards. He has threatened to release 200 more numbers every day.
The new release by the Saudi hacker was in retaliation for the release earlier this week by an Israeli hacker of Saudi credit card numbers, he told Israeli media in a message.
The Saudi hacker, a member of the Saudi hacking group Group-XP named OxOmar, said last week in an Internet message that he has hacked some 80 Israeli websites and will release a total of 1 million credit card numbers with personal information. He has released about 50,000 numbers so far. He also threatened to release documents from military contractors and companies that manufacture surveillance equipment.
